ALL ABOUT EVE

Spend Thanksgiving Eve Drinking Things at Jezebel

Tomorrow night, you'll be sitting at a table with your family talking about politics, religion and your relationship status. Tonight, you'll be drinking Jezebel's bourbon-forward Mother-in-Law cocktails, dancing to a DJ and snacking on wings and deep-fried Oreos. Enjoy this. Enjoy this good.

FEAST ON THIS

Having Thanksgiving Dinner at the Beach Is Also a Thought...

Coastal at the Atlantic Hotel is now open and will be serving Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. Just something to keep in mind should someone burn the turkey. Plus, the three-course menu of salad, turkey-and-fixings and pie require zero cleanup on your part. And there's an ocean view. No pressure.

Now open, Thanksgiving dinner Nov 23, 2-10pm, $39, Coastal at Atlantic Hotel and Spa, 601 N Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, 954-567-8070

Friday
The Gates Hotel Is Now Open, and Not a Moment Too Soon

The Gates Hotel Is Now Open, and Not a Moment Too Soon

Before agreeing to share your humble abode with company dropping in this weekend, consider sending them (or yourself) to the newly revamped Gates Hotel. There's a shiny new lobby and restaurant. Plus, there's the beautiful pool and someone else to clean up dirty towels once they get tossed on the floor.

Saturday

BIG LITTLE BUYS

Small Business Saturday Is Upon Us. Here's Where to Holiday Shop.

Holiday shopping is basically here, which is why you should check out the Small Business Saturday sales. Sweat Records will have discounted vinyl for wannabe DJ friends. Fritz's Skate Bike and Surf shop has cool ways to get around. And Kith has kicks for all the sneakerheads in your life. There, that wasn't so bad.

Sunday

Oh Look, Stiltsville Fish Bar Has Brunch Now

We're guessing you'll be sick of leftovers by Sunday, which is why Stiltsville Fish Bar's new brunch with pork belly bacon and sweet corn is a good idea. Plus, the cocktails go well with baby kale and pimento cheese omelets. And continued napping.

What Else Is New

On a typical Wednesday, Ginger Harris is likely seeking reposado tequila, squeezing her way to the front of a concert or jumping on the back of an Indian motorcycle. That’s just Wednesdays, though.
